Trump to hold campaign rally in Florida on Saturday

Trump to hold campaign rally in Florida on Saturday

The White House and Conley have faced criticism for deliberately misleading the American people, offering conflicting statements about the president's health status and treatment timeline after he tested positive - leading to a crisis of credibility regarding those tasked with informing the public on the president's health.

But aides said the short notice would make the events hard to stage. "I feel so good". He also said, "I want to get for you what I got". Logistically, whether tomorrow's possible, it would be tough. In 2016, she was embedded with the campaigns of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.

Both Biden and Trump's campaigns certified to debate organizers that the candidates and everyone who traveled with them to the debate in Cleveland tested negative within 72 hours of the debate.

Mr Trump's decision not to participate in a virtual debate would mean the second and final debate between the two White House contenders will be on 22 October, less than two weeks before the 3 November election.

The president's positive test sidelined him from in-person events that have been the lifeblood of his campaign.

William Morice, who oversees laboratories at the Mayo Clinic, said if the White House did daily PCR tests on Trump, "you could watch [his viral load] go down".

US President Donald Trump said on Thursday (Oct 8) he was doing "really good" following his coronavirus diagnosis a week ago and that he might try to do a rally on Saturday night, probably in Florida, after his physician said it was safe for him to return to public engagements then. "He won't be out there if he could transmit the virus", Kayleigh McEnany, the White House press secretary, said on Fox News.

He was due back on Fox later Friday for an interview with another loyal host, Tucker Carlson, in what will be his first on-camera media appearance since testing positive for coronavirus last week.

Trump told the network late on Thursday he was likely to be tested for the virus on Friday.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says individuals can discontinue isolation 10 days after the onset of symptoms, which for Trump was October 1, according to his doctors.

And Trump's biggest liability - overwhelming public dissatisfaction over his handling of the coronavirus crisis - has returned as the headline issue of the campaign thanks to the president's own infection.

Jason Miller, a senior advisor to Trump's campaign, said last week that campaign-rally protocol would not change in light of the president's diagnosis. Biden's campaign arranged a town hall-style event in Philadelphia instead.

The president is expected to host a "virtual rally" on Friday by taking part in conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh's radio program.

Trump told Fox News' Sean Hannity in a Thursday night telephone interview he was hoping to a organise a rally in Florida on Saturday evening "if we have enough time to put it together", and another in Pennsylvania - Democratic candidate Joe Biden's home state - on Sunday.

President Donald Trump takes to the airwaves Friday while pushing for live rallies this weekend, despite questions over his recovery from Covid-19, in a frenetic attempt to catch up with challenger Joe Biden.
